This past week, students were expected to get themselves caught up in class. Like you, I was sad to learn we would not be able to access the building. I was also sad not to be able to give our lesson on 9/11. In lieu of that lesson, I had the honor and opportunity to do a run with the Westlake Lacrosse team on 9/11 to honor those who died and to help bring a greater unity to our community.

My name is Captain Danny Horne. I am going into my 12th year of teaching for the 2019-2020 school year. I have a Masters Degree from BYU in Educational Leadership, a Bachelor's from UVU in History/Military Science and I am endorsed to teach Special Education (taught it for 5 years), Gifted & Talented (A.L.L.), Coach, and to be an Administrator in schools. In other words, I am more than qualified to do what I do. I'm close to being done with a second Master's Degree, but have put that on hold as I explore Doctorate programs. I speak Polish, some English, love learning and speaking Spanish with students and I'm learning Italian because ...why not? I am also the Varsity Head Coach for Westlake Lacrosse, which is a great honor! I get to do two of my passions in life outside of being a husband and father: Teaching and Coaching.
The purpose of this blog is to reflect on lessons taught in class and help all of us grow and connect better with people and events in history so that we may be more fully impacted, inspired and empowered.
